Thanks guys,
I'll check out the collages/universities that you guys recomended,
plus thanks for all the tips.
As for where i would like to study, it doesn't really matter as long
as it's english and the costs are at the minimum

Kenneaw State Univerity has a very good prgram at the undergraduate level if

If you want theory, then Georgia Tech, Carnegie Mellon (CIRT is located
there),
or any of a dozen major universities now offer computer security.
Do you want the attention a small college might provide, or the stimulation
that
a huge university might confer? Try the University of Illinois, Urbana.

Get internship experience before you graduate - maybe consider other
universities with CIRTs, summer hires with the government, or internships
with a
corporation that interests you.


Who do you want to work for when you graduate: corporation, government or
consulting firm? Some consulting firms care about pedigree, i.e., did
you graduate from an Ivy League College. I think that is stupid, skills,
ability
to tear apart code, and ability to learn on your own matter, but they do the
hiring not me. There are some universities that received some funding
and approval from the federal government. Check those schools out if you
want to
work for the government.

Look at wgu.edu.  they have an undergraduate course in security.  I am in
their graduate course and I love it.


Thanks,

hey guys,
I'm in my final year of high school and I'm planning to go to
university. As all people, I have trouble finding the right one ( or a
good one ). So I'm asking you people to recommend any nice
universities that teach good computer security, that is more practical
than theoretical. Please also tell me to which university you attended
and how was it? and any other general advice
